    I craved McDonald's cheeseburgers like nobody's business! We went there a few times a week to satisfy the craving :-) and I gained 50 pounds too!! I can't imagine why though? It was just a few cheeseburgers! *evil grin*

    Not Many Really ...

    I had a thing for lemon juice at the beginning. Later I was just boringly healthy and loved fresh fruit and natural yoghurt ... Nothing outrageous at all.  No lumps of coal or raw liver (yuck!).

    Not Too Much

    the only thing i remember wanting was early in the pregnancy when i wanted tomatoes and Pepsi.  Tomatoes, i love...Pepsi...i wasn't a big Pepsi drinker then at all, so the fact that i wanted it definitely made it a craving lol

    A Common One, I'm Sure

    My pregnancy craving was not to be pregnant anymore.  By all measures, both my pregnancies were profoundly easy, but even the easiest pregnancy is a pain in the ***. Food-wise, though, I drank a TON of milk - and I usually hate milk.

    What I Like...so Far

    This is my first pregnancy. I'm only two months exactly and I've already had some cravings. Fruit Loops cereal, macaroni & cheese, low fat vanilla ice cream, homemade tacos, and cheeseburgers. Well, that's all I can remember. Most of the time, it's just food aversions.
